Science! Study Suggests Steroids Increase Chances of Testicular Cancer

Confessional moment: I almost added “for Males” at the end of the title of this blog post, but considering testicular cancer is pretty specific to one gender, I felt that was a little redundant.

Anyway, as if there wasn’t enough cost and risk associated with using performance enhancing drugs, now apparently one study shows that use of this junk also increases the risk of gentlemen losing a part of their junk.

…That was terribly crude, I’m sorry.

Anyway, the article states, “[Brown University Professor] Zheng found that [Muscle-Building Supplement] users were 1.65 times as likely to get testicular cancer as those who did not use the supplements. Moreover, Zheng says, “If you used at [an] earlier age, you had a higher risk. If you used them longer, you had a higher risk. If you used multiple types, you had a higher risk.” The danger more than doubled for those who started using before they turned 25, as well as for those who used for more than three years or used more than one kind.”

Check out the article, and have a great day everyone!
